Gilbert High School’s Snyder set to play at U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship

Britta Snyder, of Ames, has made quite a name for herself.

Snyder, who has won over 100 junior golf tournaments, is just a freshman at Gilbert High School and has already committed to Baylor University to play golf in college.

In a couple weeks Snyder will head to the 2017 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship, being played May 27-31 at The Dunes Golf and Beach Club in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

As you might remember, there is an interesting story of how Snyder and to her partner, Sarah Beqaj, teamed up and qualified in Minnesota for the championship. An impressive feat considering the two had never played a team event with each other prior and came to the Twin Cities early to get a couple practice rounds in to build some quick chemistry. Even more remarkable is the fact that both were (at the time) just 14-years-old.

Beqaj, who hails from Toronto, Canada, and Britta Snyder, from Ames, Iowa, met three years ago when playing in the same group on the final day of the U.S. Kids Golf World Championships in North Carolina.
